### Why would both frame and divider conductance's be 500 W/m2-K?

I have the 4 objects in my WindowProperty:FrameAndDivider class and I am struggling to understand what each of those are representing, such they are all so similar, but with major differences, specially their conductances. Here they are: (I will highlight the relevant fields alone)

Does anybody have an idea of what that 500 W/m2.K represent? I thought of eventual infiltrations, but those are already being addressed in the ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate class.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Does anybody have any idea of what that 500 W/m2.K represent? I thought of eventual infiltrations, but those are already being addressed in the ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate class.

Thanks in advance for any help.

### Why would both frame's and divider's conductances be 500 W/m2-K?

I have the 4 objects in my WindowProperty:FrameAndDivider class and I am struggling to understand what each of those are representing, such they are all so similar, but with major differences, specially their conductances. Here they are: (I will highlight the relevant fields alone)

Does anybody have any idea of what that 500 W/m2.K represent? I thought of eventual infiltrations, but those are already being addressed in the ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate class.

Thanks in advance for any help.
